Selecta: Volume I: Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems (Hardback)Yakov G. Sinai (author)
- We can order this
The 20 papers contained in this volume span the areas of mathematical physics, dynamical systems, and probability. Yakov Sinai is one of the most important and influential mathematicians of our time, having won the Boltzmann Medal (1986), the Dirac Medal (1992), Dannie Heinemann Prize for Mathematical Physics (1989), Nemmers Prize (2002), and the Wolf Prize in Mathematics (1997). He is well-known as both a mathematician and a physicist, with numerous theorems and proofs bearing his name in both fields, and this book should be of interest to researchers from all fields of the physical sciences.

From the reviews:"The first volume is devoted to ergodic theory and dynamical systems. It contains 19 papers divided into four groups ... . The reader will find a wealth of information and ideas that can still ignite inspiration and motivate students as well as senior researchers. The reader will also have a touch of Sinai's personality, his taste, enthusiasm, and optimism, which are just as invaluable as his mathematical results."
